Recover tooth or dental work

If you’ve lost a tooth, recover it and rinse it off with water. Put it into a container of cold milk to keep it moist, and come to our office within 1-2 hours at most. If you’ve lost a crown or another piece of dental work, retrieve it, put it into a plastic container or baggie, and bring it into our office with you.

Treat pain and discomfort

You can take over-the-counter medication like ibuprofen to help with pain. In some cases, you can also use Orajel or a similar topical numbing product. Icing the cheek near the affected area also helps with pain and swelling. If your mouth is bleeding, you can use clean gauze, a paper towel, or a cotton ball to place pressure on the area and absorb blood.

Frequently Asked Questions

It's important to consider if your dental emergency is regarded as an emergency or if it can wait for a scheduled appointment. For serious issues like a severe toothache or if your dental work has fallen out, you should immediately contact your dentist for further instructions.

The answer to whether you should go to the emergency room for a dental emergency depends on the severity and symptoms of your issue. Suppose you experience swelling, bleeding, trauma that could require stitches, infection with fever and difficulty breathing, or intense pain that disrupts sleep or other activities.

In that case, it's time to go to the Emergency Room. Otherwise, call Dr. Shelton Chow at (480) 870-0888, and he will evaluate your situation and provide further instructions to get you the help you need right away.

Having a severe toothache can be a serious medical issue, and it's essential to take it seriously. If you're feeling more than a bit of soreness, it's time to get professional help.

Here are some tips on what to do when you're experiencing a severe toothache:

  • Don't wait for the pain to get worse. Make an appointment with Dr. Chow as soon as possible.
  • Take an over-the-counter pain reliever to help reduce the discomfort.
  • Use an ice pack on your face to reduce swelling and inflammation around the affected area.
  • Avoid eating or drinking anything hot or cold until you see a dentist. This includes avoiding foods like ice cream and soup until your teeth are checked.
  • Rinse with warm salt water to disinfect the area, but don't use cotton swabs or other implements for brushing until you see your dentist.
  • Saltwater is safe and can help clean the area in case of infection, but it shouldn't be used as your primary cleaning solution or as a substitute for your regular dental care routine.

If your dental work, like braces, dentures, or crowns, has become loose or fallen out, you may need quick action. The first thing you should do is assess the situation. Can you identify what caused the problem? Was it something that happened internally in your mouth, or was there an external factor at play?

If you need immediate assistance, then it is best to do two things:

  • Call your dentist right away. Dr. Shelton Chow and his team of experienced professionals at Dentistry of Gilbert are ready and available to help. Dial (480) 870-0888, and they will help you find a solution to your dental emergency as soon as they can.
  • In the meantime, if possible, try to protect the area using dental wax. This will help stop further damage until you arrive at a dental office for a more permanent fix.
